Truth Told. Especially after Hillary Clinton's highly scripted sham "win" last night. She only got there because the Super Delegates.

She still beat Bernie with overall votes.

However, the superdelegates that flooded to her before Iowa voted, gave her the narrative of inevitability.

That's because people who might have voted for him, didn't because they knew there was no point. Hillary started out with a 500+ delegate lead. This was hugely unfair to the other candidates.

and they were free to change their support all along, if she wasnt winning by vote count, delegate count, states won, they didnt have to keep supporting her

bernie lost, and it isnt because of super delegates that are non binding

Then why is it that Hillary had declared herself the winner. These Super Delegates can still change their mind, as you put it, until the convention is actually held.

Yep. I thought so.

give them a reason.... nope, bernie cant. he won fewer delegates, fewer states, lost in popular vote

you keep saying they are unfair, then what reasons do you have for them to support him? you liking him doesnt mean they have to

what, you want them to judge based on how big of a rally bernie can draw? politics isnt a popularity contest

in california, all he accomplished was out spending hillary, and he still lost the race, why would they support him?

Hillary was guaranteed the nomination this year as the Democrats thought it was more important for her to step down and allow Obama to become the first Black President. The dems just didn't expect the uphill battle from Bernie. They as with the Republicans refuse to see that the majority of Americans want change and abhor both party elitists.

Can the superD crap. It's obviously an advantage if insiders prefer a candidate and give them a gazillion point lead off the bat. It's like a football team being down 35 in the first quarter...change the channel immediately.

How is it that Bernie lost? Hillary didn't win the required number of delegates either.

It will be the Super Delegates at the convention that picks the nominee and that hasn't been held yet.
